The first gas station to apply for and receive a liquor license in Carol Stream is the BP at the northwest corner of Gary and North avenues.
The gas station operator, Suson LLC, was awarded the new Class P liquor license this week by the village board on a 4-1 vote, with Trustee Don Weiss opposed.
In February, the village board approved creating the new liquor license classification that allows gas stations to sell beer and wine. Carol Stream is at least the 11th town in DuPage County to allow some type of liquor sales at gas stations, according to a survey by the DuPage Mayors & Managers Conference.
The BP station's license goes into effect May 1.
